Vernon McGee is timeless. Though these commentaries were written years ago, his comments are timeless. He does an excellent job of bringing the characters to life and comparing them to people in our culture today. He has plenty of insights, i.e., I was excited about reading the names of the people who were building the wall and the function of each gate in the Book of Nehemiah. He is so descriptive, he takes the reader into the events of that day.
When I read my first Vernon McGee commentary, I was laughing so hard because he has such a wonderful sense of humor.
I have many of his commentaries and highly recommend them for use in small group studies.
Dr. McGee delivers the goods as he does through all his series of "Thru the Bible." A first rate expositor whose voice is still heard on many, many Christian radio stations through his five year trek through the entire Bible.
I have enjoyed studying Ezra, Nehemiah and beginning Esther. Dr. McGee has brought out many things which cause one to think about the event that are taking place in that time of history and relates them to our time.
